Spread about 1/2 cup 'Mexican Meat Mix' over the lower third of each tortilla. Fold the bottom edges of each tortilla up over filling. Fold both sides toward the center and roll into a cylinder. Secure rolled tortillas with a toothpick. Fry 2 chimichangas at a time in hot oil about 2 minutes until golden and crisp. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot over a layer of lettuce. Top with green chili salsa, tomatoes, guacamole and sour cream. Garnish each with an olive.
